      The growth system includes models for individual tree survival, diameter growth, height growth, and change in crown ratio for each of the three species groups. A multivariate extension of a two-step, model-based interpolation method is proposed to estimate parameters of annual tree growth equations based on measurements from 7-year growth periods. Site index (base age 50 years), recorded on each 1A-acre plot for the dominant species, ranged from 30 to Site-index conversion equations were used to assign the appropriate site index to each tree depending on its species. Quadratic mean stand diameter ranged from 5 to 13 inches, indicating a wide range in the age of the stands sampled.

Growth intercept methods for predicting site index in red pine plantations in the Allegheny Plateau of Ohio. In red pine [Pinus resinosa] stands planted on old-field sites, correlations between height growth of trees below breast height (BH) and height growth above BH were not statistically significant.

Carmean et al. () provided seven sets of site index curves for red pine using various index ages. Although an index age of 50 is commonly used, some of them use younger index ages.

These curves are representative of height growth patterns for red pine based on total tree age, plantation age, and age measured at breast height (measured at ft or m above the ground) for specific.

Sixty-five jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) plantations (growth and variable growth intercept (GI) models for jack pine plantations in northern Ontario, Canada.

Based on the residual plots and model-fitting statistics, these models can be recommended for estimating site index (SI) of young. A study investigating precision and effects of the growth-intercept method of estimating site index, in young (approximately to yr-old) stands of black pine (P.

nigra) in Arcadia (early s plantations on former heathlands - 39 sample plots) and the Pindos Mountains (natural stands, on previous P.

nigra forest destroyed by fires - 42 plots). The primary disadvantage of the growth intercept method is that early height growth patterns may not be a reflection of later height growth patterns.

Table 1 and 2 below provide estimates of site quality for red pine based on annual internode growth above breast height.

Table 1. Estimates of site index for red pine trees greater than 15 years old. Site index based on height growth is now the most widely accepted method for estimating site quality in the United States.

There are several methods for estimating site quality. Direct estimation of site index is based on height and age measurements from free-growing, uninjured, dominant, or dominant and codominant trees.

This assessment includes the quantification of regenerated site potentials, as commonly measured by site index.

Growth intercept models were developed in this study to estimate site index based on a few years of juvenile height growth above a conveniently selected base height. The growth intercept models for black spruce were the most precise, followed by those for jack pine and finally by those for balsam fir, based on the root mean square errors.

Results indicated that the accuracy of the models was good, relative to those previously published for other species in Canada. Height-growth patterns for jack pine (Pinusbanksiana Lamb.) were studied using stem analyses from dominant and codominant trees on plots in north central plots were in natural, well-stocked, even-aged stands 50 years of age or older.

Data from 32 of the plots were randomly selected to confirm results, the remaining plots were used for computing the curves. The study was carried out in to on the 11 km 2 island Svanøy at the western coast of Norway (61°30N, 5°05E).
